Positive, powerful co-creative wave

As the collective cWave surfingonsciousness shifts further towards a co-creative existence we have a powerful opportunity to accelerate our own growth and expansion. The coming wave of energy has the capacity to lift all of us to a greater level of co-creative power than ever before – as long as we’re ready and aligned to it. We’ve been expecting this wave for some time and, as it comes closer, a little more detail would be useful as each stage of the wave tends to require a different alignment – just ask any surfer. I’ve added some links to some videos that’ll help you align to each phase.

Phase 1: As the wave is building the water level seems to drop and the motion of the water goes backwards. This is similar to the extremely low tide that occurs before any tsunami. At this point you need to point your surfboard towards the shore and paddle like crazy to build momentum for what’s coming. This is the phase we’re in now. It may feel like things are going backwards but it’s just the polarity building towards what comes next. Now is the time to increase the amount of energy you’re putting into the projects that’ll take you to your next level of expansion.  This phase will probably last until about August of this year. Click here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2uQFfpe6C18 to watch David Tennant (former Dr Who) sum up this current period for you.

Phase 2: The water stops dropping and the flow begins to reverse. This is the time to get up on your board and make sure you’re probably balanced. That means you want to ensure that any systems you’ve put into place for your future projects are having the effects – both direct and indirect – that you want them to. This period will probably cover the latter part of 2017 until the later part of 2018. Click here http://www.ted.com/talks/jeanne_gang_buildings_that_blend_nature_and_city to learn about how everything in our lives, including the buildings we live in, can be a system for interdependency and co-creation.

Phase 3: This is the fun phase that most of us focus on, but it’s important to remember we can’t get there without the momentum of phase 1 and the alignment of phase 2. In this phase the wave is moving through powerfully. It’s not only lifted our surfboard, it’s got enough strength and vigour that we can do all that cool stuff – shooting tubes or whatever it is that surfers do. This is the phase in which all your creative endeavours will manifest with ease, grace and joy. It’s an incredible time – and one we’re all looking forwards to. The main challenge here is to increase our capacity for the positive, for joy and pleasure. This period will probably start either late 2018 or early 2019 and continue for at least four or five years. This is the time we’ve all been working towards, to make sure we’re positioned to make the most of it. Click here https://www.ted.com/talks/mihaly_csikszentmihalyi_on_flow to learn how to flow with happiness.

Phase 4: This is the last phase that comes with mastery of all the previous phases. Things are now easy and we’re able to simply go with what we’ve created. It’s important in this phase to really enjoy all the fruits of our co-creations as the new cycle will be coming soon. We will move into this phase in the mid 2020s. Things are going to be good for a long while. Yay! Click here https://www.ted.com/talks/don_norman_on_design_and_emotion to learn some design techniques not only for your work and creations, but your life itself.

If you align yourself to the wave that’s coming, with special attention to each phase, your life will expand over the next few years to a level you won’t have conceived of before now. It’s going to be exciting!  We wish you joy of the journey.

Regreening the simple (but effective) way.

I’ve always said the technology to regreen the earth and solve climate change already exists, but the will does not.  Happily this program called FMNR (Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration) proves that I was right about the former, but wrong about the latter.

The simplicity of the answer is very cool – and effective.  Rather than planting new trees, which takes many years for benefits to be realised, they’ve begun to simply protect and appropriately prune the regrowth from trees which still have viable roots under the soil.  Overgrazing wasn’t allowing these trees to regrow but, with the right approach, benefits are being realised within years, rather than decades.

The FMNR program has already re-greened millions of hectares in Africa, with manifold benefits in the health, nutrition and even education of the locals, as well as benefits to our planet as a whole and to the climate.  There’s always an answer, if only we can see it.  And, thanks to this one Australian aid worker, one of the answers to healing a devastated environment has been found.

So if you’re feeling a little hopeless about climate change, watch this and you’ll rekindle hope for yourself.  If you’d like to assist in rekindling hope for this planet you can always go to www.fmnrhub.com.au

Want something inspiring?

One thing the fractal teaches us is that everything serves – everything has its place in the whole.  If even one piece is missing we are diminished.  This short video shows that in clear ways.  When the wolves were re-introduced into Yellowstone Park after an absence of 70 years no one was sure what was going to happen – they certainly didn’t expect it to change the course of the river!!

World Science Festival

holographic_world-757x467I’ve recently been listening to some of the recordings of the World Science Festival.  This is a very cool gathering that happens in New York where eminent scientists get together to let the world know what is happening at the frontiers of science.  There are many excellent talks to choose from.

What I particularly found fascinating was how many of the panels included physicists and philosophers.  That in itself is a powerful sign of how close our understanding of the world around us and our consciousness is becoming.

In the talk I’ve included here, which you can also find at the World Science Festival website at http://www.worldsciencefestival.com/programs/holographic_world/ , they’re not only talking about the world we know it as a hologram but it seems they are getting very close to understanding that fractals are essential to a unified understanding.

Note where Professor Raphael Bousso talks about how their growing understanding of black holes has led them to realise that the key is to unify quantum mechanics, which is about information, and gravity, which is about the shape of space and time.  Fractals hold complex information in simple codes, and our understanding of them was derived from topology, the study of shapes and surfaces.  So far they are still studying the information side of things from a linear perspective, which is, I believe, holding up the next significant breakthrough.  But when a network theory of information is developed they’ll understand better that the information on the surface of a black hole is not so much individual bits of information but networked bits, and then we’ll see another revolution in technology.

Or so I believe.  It’s going to be interesting to see what happens.

A well-deserved celebration

Last week Monika von Koss graduated from her Fractology training.  She is the first practitioner to complete her training not just in Brazil, but in the whole of South America. This is a huge achievenn significant step forward for Brazil and Fractology.

Monika has had a successful psychotherapy practice in Sao Paulo for many years and with this graduation adds significantly to her skill base.  The benefits of having a Fractology Practitioner in such a large city is huge.

Congratulations Monika.

We wish her all the very best with her practice and ongoing journey.

Holographic Initiations in Brazil

Holographic initiates with Dr Catherine Wilkins

Today we marked a milestone in Fractology. We had a group initiation into the hologram, and fractal perception which is enabled by holographic space. This initiation is done part-way through the Fractology Practitioner training and marks a milestone in our spiritual and metaphysical awareness.

This group initiation is a shift globally for Fractology, and for me personally as I haven’t initiated more than one person at a time into this space before now.

Fractology is growing up and going global.

Congratulations to all the initiates. The future for Sao Paulo is looking brighter by the minute.

Lollipops have a higher power

The Temple of Good Will

Once I got to Sao Paulo in Brazil I then flew out again to the nation’s capital of Brazilia. After all the talk I have been doing about Emily Simpson’s labyrinth project for Centennial Park the first thing they did was show me their own labyrinth.

This is a simple 7 spiral labyrinth set inside the most remarkable building. It is a building dedicated to good will, a  modern day pyramid with the most enormous quartz on its peak.

Then I did my talk at the Brazilian Society for Psycho-Oncology to a very select group of people drawn from all over the country. Here is a short exerpt from the talk:

The complexity of fractals enable simple principles to be applied with ever-increasing options or opportunities, through growth, which in fractal terms is called iteration – yet another repetition of the base pattern. At the same time, a fractal is robust, maintaining its coherence throughout every opportunity. Many dynamic systems, through finding the most efficient method of networking, will start to form complex patterns that will take on fractal characteristics.

This is now being used in the analysis of cancer cells. Analysis of the fractal dimension of a cancer cell is not only showing great promise of early detection, but is also showing the ability to diagnose the cell-type with a great degree of rapidity and reliability.

Of interest in the field of psychology, fractals are an effective model for neural modelling. Our brains have fractal organisation. Fractal processes and properties occur at many levels of neural organizations and performance, and are functionally relevant. This is especially true with the growing understanding of the brain as not just simply the functioning of individual neurons, but the functioning of whole neural networks.

It was extremely well received and we hope to see a growing interest in the work of Fractology as a result. If you’d like a copy of the whole text of the talk (not that I stuck to it very well) please email me and I’ll be happy to send you a copy.

After the talk we went to Pirenopolis via John of God. There’s some very powerful, raw energies in that place. At Pirenopolis we were able to relax and enjoy the Brasilian countryside. However, Ruth who was with us was in pain from an injury a couple of weeks previously. She asked me to have a look and when I examined it, it was clear her big toe was broken. She’d been to the doctor but he hadn’t touched it and it was left unsplinted.

All I had with me were some bandaids and some lollipop sticks. But they were enough to splint her big toe and get her some relief. Which proves two things:

1. There’s always an answer.

2. Lollipops have a higher power.

Pacific Interdependency

pacific islandsOne of the signs of the evolution of the collective consciousness is to be found in the continuing shift from codependent financial rescue to interdependent financial co-creation.  This has sometimes been summed up as ‘trade, not aid’.

A recent, and very encouraging, example of this is to be found right here in Australia.  The Australian government is reducing their foreign aid but at the same time the Pacific Seasonal Worker Program has been established.  This program was established about five years ago to alleviate the chronic shortage of reliable seasonal labour in Australia.  Many farmers require this kind of labour for crops that have to be harvested by hand, like asparagus.   The problem is that backpackers can be very unreliable and tend to move on after only a short time.

By offering this kind of seasonal work to the Vanuatuans, or Ni-Vans as they call themselves, the farmers get a reliable source of labour, many of whom return year after year so they are also skilled at the work.  The farmers also are relieved of any concerns about the possible legality of the workforce and are able to plan their crops ahead, knowing the harvesters will be there.  The workers get to be paid a good wage with a strong currency.  This is important as in Vanuatu even primary school has to be paid for so being able to get this kind of work enables those who do the labour to pay for their children’s education, and hence this program is also acting to break the poverty cycle.

The scheme now extends to eight countries of the near Pacific, including Timor-Leste.  It is a program which is working for all those concerned; the farmers, the workers and those who manage the scheme.  This kind of co-creative practice solves problems for everyone, enabling them all to expand their abundance and fulfilment in life.  It is these kind of programs which are truly interdependent; they offer true long-term solutions instead of simple band-aids.

The Obvious Breakthrough

new-breakthroughMany of the breakthroughs we get with modern technology take thinking in a new reality, like the lightbulb.  But many are the results of common sense, but obvious only after the fact. Like wheels on luggage.  And don’t we all wish we’d invented that?

Such a breakthrough has just happened in the land of practical solutions, New Zealand.

A new way to catch fish alive and unharmed was secretly developed in Nelson and unveiled only yesterday.  It will revolutionise the fishing industry (given time) to the benefit of the marine biodiversity and fishing stocks around the world.

Precision Seafood Harvesting (PSH) was suggested by Nelson Plant and Food Research science group leader Alistair Jerrett to a sceptical fishing industry several years ago. So often the obvious meets with resistance just because it hasn’t been done before. But now it’s a fact with an investment of $52 million by three of New Zealand’s biggest seafood companies and the Government.

The system has been successfully trialled in commercial volumes, and has resulted in catches as large as they were with the older nets.  It allows small fish to escape unharmed from a new tunnel-like net end made of PVC. Bigger fish are brought on board trawlers alive and in top condition. They can then be sorted, with bycatch species (fish we don’t eat) released.

It can also bring fish up alive from 200 metres. Catches from deeper water, unable to survive the ascent, can be landed in much better condition than the present method, which squeezes them into a compact mass and which also strains them out of the water.

This “cod end” now has a worldwide patent.  After 150 years of little change in the nets of the fishing industry this opens up new ways to protect fish stocks while ensuring a premium-quality catch.  It’s a win for both industry and the environment, as well as the common sense thinking that brought it to us.

My Good News

Through Fractology we understand the world is neither good nor bad, but has tremendous potential for either.

Which potential manifests depends on how each of us focuses our energies. While there is a lot to be concerned about on this planet, there is also much to be positive and happy about. Here we post some of those positive things which are happening, to assist us all to have a more positive focus and so create a more positive future.

From Waste To Resource

Through Fractology we understand the world is neither good nor bad, but has tremendous potential for either.

Here we post some of those positive things which are happening, to assist us all to have a more positive and so create a more positive future.

Every year about 20 billion old tyres end up in dumps and landfill. There is also a huge amount of other carbon rich polymer plastics which add to these dumps. Much of this plastic also ends up in the oceans and is becoming another huge issue. One woman has had the interdependent wisdom to see this as an opportunity, rather than the massive problem most of us understandably consider it.

Professor Veena Sahajwalla is an engineer. She was born in Mumbai, trained in Canada and USA and now works in Australia. She has found a way to use the carbon in these waste products to improve the iron extraction of electric arc furnaces.

Her process improves the efficiency of the process so much that the furnaces are able to reduce their power consumption by millions of kilowatts per year. This type of furnace produces about 30% of the world’s crude steel. The global application of her invention could see the recycling of many of the old tyres which are dumped each year.

We can’t applaud this kind of thinking enough. This type of wisdom, mixed with expertise, enables technology and the environment to live side by side.

From Dry Land To Wetland

Through Fractology we understand the world is neither good nor bad, but has tremendous potential for either.

Here we post some of those positive things which are happening, to assist us all to have a more positive and so create a more positive future.

Contrary to the beliefs of many people, government often tend to follow what the populace do, rather than providing real leadership. They follow polls and often only take up initiatives once we have proved they’re workable and wanted. Interdependent people do not wait for government to ‘rescue’ them but figure out how to elegantly and effectively solve problems. For this reason we consider this a wonderful good news story of true leadership.

In Victoria, south of Mildura, is the Hattah Lakes. This is part of the Murray Darling basin wetlands; a significant area where a little help has a large impact.

This is especially true when we consider that 90% of the wetlands from this basin have been lost. The remainder are important drought refuges.

The Australian Conservation Foundation ran the Just Add Water Campaign rather than waiting for the government to do what’s needed. They received overwhelming support from the public, whom they asked to donate just $15 each, to enable them to buy 400 million litres of ‘irrigation’ water (twice as much as the original target) for release into the wetlands.

From Drought Disaster To Green Pasture

Through Fractology we understand the world is neither good nor bad, but has tremendous potential for either.

Here we post some of those positive things which are happening, to assist us all to have a more positive focus and so create a more positive future.

Desertification is one of the greatest threats to the planet today, though largely overshadowed by climate change. Many people do not realise that most deserts have been created, in part of full, by man. There is some great work being done which is beginning the very necessary reversal of this disastrous process.

Peter Andrews is author of Back from the Brink and a Mudgee farmer. He has applied the principles of interdependency to the land to understand the roles of different plant species, especially those of weeds which we so often judge negatively.

He has developed a system using these different species of plants to keep the water within the soil. This has been the key to reversing much of the damage done to the Australian landscape by European farming methods.

He enables the natural relationship of all plants to the soil to keep water moving through the land. By doing so, he has turned many tracts of land from drought ridden disasters to green, productive, thriving landscapes. He has created the Natural Sequence Association to rehabilitate larger areas using his methods.
